Teaching Principles

I believe in a tension free golf swing. I start every student with the basic fundamentals (Posture, grip and alignment) because if you do not have the basics, it is impossible to have a good golf swing. While teaching all levels of golfers from beginners to Professionals, I believe teaching should be kept simple and fun. Every student is taught at his or her own pace. I truly believe that you can eliminate swing flaws and reinforce the correct swing changes with video, exercises, and training aids. Every student will learn at a faster pace and enjoy the great game of golf.
